About Me


Live long and prosper, as life is too short to live someone else's life. Enjoy every moment and embrace it.


My life style choice is a Straightedge (sXe) despite not being a punk. I'm a geek, a nerd, a gamer and INTP-A (

"Never retreat, never explain, never apologize — get the thing done and let them howl."

I am an open book, full of various experiences and surprises between the lines. You can call me The Riddler.

Would you dare to start from page 1?
Or you will just judge by the cover?
Maybe you just want to hangout or have a night off close to London, but away from its rush?


There is no tomorrow, nor yesterday, there is only here and now.

I would like to propose you a game, here and now:
Uno write down your dreams
Dos make them happen.
Tres are you sure that these are the things that you want to sacrifice your life to?

In other words, be a living proof of your experiences and beliefs, if science proofs them to be wrong, change them and carry on.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting and surfing since 1990's.

My CS experience evolved into biggest Polish gaming conference - Zjazd Twórców Gier now Game Industry Conference ( / with nearly ~3k participants every year.


I used to couchsurf before it even started, at various locations when I was doing talks in Poland or someone wanted to meet me and it was always a positive experience.

Couchsurfing *Requirements* (just to show you, that I don't expect miracles :) ):

1* - You can't host and you can't meet - hopefully we will be able to catch up in the future!
2* - You can't host but you can meet - \o/ I see a new friendship on the horizon
3* - You let me sleep in your garden (so no one can take away my belongings)
4* - I can sleep outside but have some roof to protect me from the rain (tent/balcony) \o/
5* - I can stay inside on the floor, but at least it's warm and not windy.
6* - I got a chair to sleep on and a shower to clean myself.

Extra 1* - There is a coach. Bed is priceless.
Extra 2* - There's WiFi and Power Socket.
Extra infinite* - Well... you have time to spent with me, show me things around and maybe play some games (board/video) and chat!


Games - Board, card, vdeo.
History, beliefs, mythology and linguistics.
Sci-fi, fantasy and religions.

Music, Movies, and Books

Everything really, you can't judge the book just by a cover, you can't judge things based on someone else tastes.

However I love twists on known subjects, and professional creativity so as such Christopher Moore and Frank Herbert will be always referred by me.
